Terry Gilliam’s 1984
Brazil(1985) is a great SCIFI feature that’s one of the most visually rewarding films to watch. The movie deals with a computer error that causes havoc for the protagonist, Sam Lowry. Sam Lowry is someone who dreams of living as an individual, away from the system of Big Brother. The movie is heavily influenced by George Orwell’s classic novel, 1984. Brazil(1985) is the closest thing to a perfect adaptation of 1984 for the big screen.
Brazil(1985) is more well known for what happened behind the scenes than anything that happens in the film. There was a bitter battle between the director and producer that ended up in the cutting of the film much to Terry Gilliam’s disapproval. As a result there are three cuts of the film(director, studio, TV). I’ve seen both the 142Minute and 132Minute version. In my opinion, the 142Minute edition is the definite one to watch.
Jonathan Pryce as Sam Lowry does a great act in showing someone who is imprisoned by the system. Robert De Niro plays Sam Lowry’s alter ego, Harry Tuttle in an eccentric role for the actor. At first De Niro wanted the role of Sam’s best friend but instead got the role of the spy Harry Tuttle. The film retains the forbidden love affair between Sam Lowry and Jill Layton that is an important element in 1984. A lot of scens that involved Kim Griest were cut due to the dissatifaction of her performance from the director.
Brazil(1985) is Terry Gilliam’s masterwork and a well directed piece by the filmmaker himself. The set designs are dazzling and the depiction of city life is nothing short of amazing. The title song is one of the most famous tunes. Much better then 12 Monkeys(1996) because this is a more complete film. Brazil(1985) is part of a trilogy that includes Time Bandits(1981) and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen(1988).
This trilogy is really about the progression of life that begins in Childhood, continues in Middleage, and ends with Old age. Brazil(1985) is really about the uncertainties of middleage. The samurai dream sequences are a marvalous example of the symbolisms they provide for the movie. Bob Hoskins gives a dark humorous act as a government plumber. The dream sequences with Sam Lowry and his dream girl are beautifully romantic.
Gilliam In Overdrive
Not necessarily an easy movie to score on account of its Da-Da-ism.
Gilliam hit popular notoriety with his bizarre cartoon interludes during the ‘Monty Python’ series. The man clearly had a an amazing imagination mixed with an equivalent sense of humour. There was going to be a lot more to come. Not all of it was good. But ‘Brazil’ was surely his magnum opus.
His work entails more than a shade of Python (naturally), hints of Roald Dahl, and something else uniquely him.
Brazil is astonishing. It’s almost a take on 1984, with a pretty ineffectual hero standing-in for equally ineffectual Winston Smith. He is an honest and diligent man who discovers a foul-up which he tries to put right, only for things to go disastrously wrong. In time, he finds himself fighting the system and pursuing a rebellious young woman truck driver (Orwell’s ‘Julia’). As the movie progresses, we are led through a series of tableaux which leave us wondering just how much of what we see is actually in the real world, and how much is the hero’s deluded imagination. For those who like neat little denouements it can be a disappointment. The best thing, I think, is to just go along for the ride.
That ride takes us through some great parodies of the present. We have set-piece monolithic ministries with incomprehensible bureaucracy. There are legions of dangerously dumb guards, a ruined environment that is boarded-out of view by idealised advertisements and much more. There are also some great characters played very believably by an equally great cast. Small, visual Pythonesque gags pop-up all along the way. Rich old women desperately trying to stay young, cramped little offices were desk space is fought over, unreliable technology and Kafka-esquire confusion. The sniffing machine that got a little too intimate was one of many little touches that had me laughing out loud.
You can get lost in this movie. And perhaps that’s what Gilliam intended. Whatever it is, it’s a piece of unique theatre that does what it does extremely well. You just may not enjoy it. A bit like Dali’s cloth watch.
